What Maria Montessori Education Centre says…

Montessori is a system of education based on the understanding that every child has an innate motivation to learn. We provide a thoughtfully prepared environment, designed to promote physical, academic, and psychological development. In our mixed-age classrooms, children are free to work at their own pace, collaborating in small groups lead by their guides. We know that children learn best by using all their senses, not just by listening, so the carefully-designed Montessori materials support children’s need to feel, smell, manipulate, and hear. Traditional education divides up learning into arbitrary categories, but the Montessori curriculum is a deeply interconnected one, with children never learning unconnected facts, but always focusing on integrated patterns of knowledge.

At every level, our program is rich with:

  • multi-sensory, self-directed learning;
  • conflict resolution skill-building; and
  • an emphasis on both collaboration and independent thinking.

Our students learn, not a laundry list of quickly-outdated facts, but the skills necessary to learn whatever they need to know.
